WashPost's John Kelly: Naming Airport for Reagan Like Renaming Atlanta

May 21st, 2014 1:05 PM
The Washington Post's John Kelly rarely gets political in his Metro section columns, but when he does, they can be real doozies. So it's not all that surprising that Kelly found it irresistible to attack the late President Ronald Reagan in today's column in which he opposed a new bipartisan proposal by Missouri's U.S. senators Claire McCaskill (D) and Roy Blunt (R) to rename the federal city's…

WaPo's Kelly Uses '64 Multiple Murder-Suicide To Push for More Gun Con

January 24th, 2013 4:52 PM
The Washington Post’s Metro columnist John Kelly has climbed aboard the gun control train once again. Usually Kelly's writing is non-controversial non-political fare about local Washington, D.C. history, but this week, his columns turned political. For Inauguration Day, he turned his column into a screed to attack out-of-towners for being dismissive of the District of Columbia's lack of voting…

WaPo Book Reviewer Shoe-horns Slam of George Bush Into Book Review on

January 14th, 2013 5:04 PM
Leave it to a Washington Post book reviewer to find a way to blame George W. Bush for the Irish Potato Famine.

July 24th, 2012 4:28 PM
Updated below: Kelly replies via Twitter. Washington Post Metro columnist John Kelly usually avoids controversial political subjects and often does "answer man" features about local D.C.-area history, making his feature overall an enjoyable read. But from time to time Kelly works in his liberal bias, just as when he bashed conservative talk show hosts as "right-wing nutjobs" and when he…

On Three Occasions In Two Weeks, WashPost Staffers Attacked Homeschool

February 20th, 2012 4:43 PM
Sheesh! What have taxpaying homeschooling parents ever done to the Washington Post? There's a bill working its way through the Virginia General Assembly that would, if passed, require that public high schools in the Old Dominion allow homeschooled children to try out for athletic teams for the school which they would attend  were they enrolled in the public school system. Post staffer Anita…

Washington Post Veteran Disparages Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin as ‘R

January 13th, 2012 12:15 PM
Another bit of evidence emerged Thursday about how deeply ingrained anti-conservative hatred is inside America’s newspapers, even amongst those who don’t cover politics. John Kelly, a Washington Post lifestyle columnist inside the “Metro” section best-known for raising money for Children’s National Medical Center and Sunday “Answer Man” columns about DC-area history, used the passing of a…

WaPo Columnist: Verizon Counting on Old People to Die Off

March 15th, 2011 4:23 PM
To borrow from former Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), Verizon hopes old people die and die quickly. That, in a nutshell is the gripe of Washington Post Metro section columnist John Kelly, whose wrath has been kindled  by the phone company recent decision to discontinue its 936-1212 weather line:
